Introduction

This family of documents comprised of the ISO 16321 series, the ISO 18526 series and the ISO 18527 series

was developed in response to the worldwide stakeholders’ demand for minimum requirements and test

methods for eye and face protectors traded internationally. ISO 4007 gives the terms and definitions

for all the various product types. The test methods are given in the ISO 18526 series, while the

requirements for occupational eye and face protectors are given in the ISO 16321 series. Eye protection

for specific sports are mostly dealt with by the ISO 18527 series. A guidance document, ISO 19734, for

the selection, use and maintenance of eye and face protectors is under preparation.

Introduction

This family of documents was developed in response to the worldwide stakeholder's demand for

minimum requirements and test methods for eye and face protectors traded internationally. ISO 4007

gives the terms and definitions for all the various product types. The test methods are in the ISO 18526-

series, while the requirements for occupational eye and face protectors are in the ISO 16321- series. Eye

protection for specific sports is mostly dealt with by the ISO 18527- series. A guidance document for the

selection, use and maintenance of eye and face protectors is in preparation.

3 Terms and definitions

For the purposes of this document the terms and the definitions given in ISO 4007 apply.

ISO and IEC maintain terminological databases for use in standardization at the following addresses:

— IEC Electropedia: available at http:// www .electropedia .prg/
— ISO online browsing platform: available at http:// www .iso .org/ obp

For the purposes of this document, “eye protector” shall be taken to mean eye protectors for Squash,

Racquetball and Squash 57.
4 General requirements for eye protectors
4.1 Headforms for testing

Unless the manufacturer defines the applicable headforms according to ISO 18526-4 to be compatible

with the eye protector, the test methods where headforms are required shall use the headform 1-M

according to ISO 18526-4 as the default.
4.2 Construction

Areas of the eye protectors that may, during intended use, come into contact with the wearer shall be

smooth, without sharp protuberances that may cause discomfort or injury to the wearer. This shall be

tested by physical inspection in accordance with ISO 18526-3, 6.1.
4.3 Lens material and surface quality

In an area 30 mm diameter centred on the reference point, but excluding a marginal area 5 mm wide

around the edge of the lens if this overlaps with the circular area, lenses shall have no material or

machining defects that may impair vision, e.g. bubbles, scratches, inclusions, dull spots, pitting, mould

marks, notches, reinforced areas, specks, beads, water specks, pocking, gas inclusions, splintering,

cracks, polishing defects or undulations. Outside this zone, small isolated material and/or surface defects

may be acceptable. This shall be tested by visual assessment in accordance with ISO 18526-3, 6.6.

4.4 Physiological compatibility

Eye protectors shall be designed and manufactured in such a way that when used under the conditions

and for the purposes intended, they will not compromise the health or safety of the wearer. The risks

posed by substances leaking or evaporating from the eye protector that can come into prolonged contact

with the wearer shall be reduced by the manufacturer to within the limits of any existing regulatory

limit. Special attention shall be given to substances that are allergenic, carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic

to reproduction.

NOTE 1 Excessive pressure due to a poor fit on the face, chemical irritation or allergy is known to produce

reactions. Rare or idiosyncratic reactions to any material are known to occur and the individual wearer is well

advised to avoid those types of frame materials.

ISO/DIS 18527-2:2018(E)

NOTE 2 Specific national regulations with regard to restriction of certain chemical substances should be

observed, for example release of nickel in Europe.
4.5 Retention by headband and harnesses (Sit and fit)

Eye protectors shall sit in the intended position during normal use and shall adapt to the contours of

the face. The surfaces in contact with the face shall be made of soft flexible material. Any head strap

shall be designed to be flexible or adjustable and sit securely on the back of the head. Any head strap

assembly shall not cause any discomfort nor exhibit any insecurity when tested in accordance with

ISO 18526-3, 6.5.
5 Transmittance
5.1 Test methods

Transmittance values shall be determined in accordance with ISO 18526-2, Clause 6 to 11 as appropriate.

Luminous transmittance shall be calculated using CIE Standard Illuminant D65 (ISO 4007:2018,

3.9.1.31).
5.2 Transmittance categories

Depending upon their luminous transmittance at their reference point and at (23 ± 1) °C in the case

of temperature sensitive transmittance, lenses for Squash, Racquetball and Squash 57 use shall be

attributed to one of the five tint categories in Table 1.

The range of the luminous transmittance of these five categories is given by the values in Table 1. An

overlap of the transmittance values shall be not more than ±2 % (absolute) between the categories 0, 1,

2 and 3. There is no overlap in transmittance values between categories 3 and 4.

If the supplier declares a luminous transmittance value, the maximum deviation for this value shall be

±3 % absolute for the transmittance values falling in categories 0 to 3 and ±30 % relative to the stated

value for the transmittance values falling in category 4.

When describing the transmittance properties of lenses with changeable tint, e.g. photochromic, two

categories for transmittance values are generally used. These two values correspond to the highest

transmittance state and to the lowest transmittance state of the lens.

Table 1 specifies also the UV requirements for Squash, Racquetball and Squash 57 eye protectors.

NOTE Some national requirements may stipulate a different requirement for long wavelength limit of UV-A.

5.3 General transmittance requirements
5.3.1 Uniformity of luminous transmittance and transmittance matching

Lenses that are intended to be uniformly tinted shall appear to be visually uniform within a circle 30

mm in diameter around the reference points or to the edge of the lens less the marginal zone 5 mm

wide, whichever is greater,and appear to have the same transmittance at the two reference points

when inspected against a white background in accordance with ISO 18526-3, 6.6. Where there is visible

non-uniformity, then, when tested according to ISO 18526-2, 7.4, the relative difference in the luminous

transmittance value between any two points of the lens shall not be greater than 15 % (relative to the

higher value), except for tint category SR4 where it shall not be greater than 20 %.

Where there are visibly mismatched transmittances at the reference points, when measured in

accordance with ISO 18526-2, 7.5, the difference in luminous transmittance values at the reference

points for the right and left eyes shall not exceed 15 % (relative to the higher transmittance).

5.3.2 Variations due to thickness variations

Changes of luminous transmittance that are caused by thickness variations due to the design of the lens

are permitted. For verification, the test method in ISO 18526-2, 7.4.1.4 shall be used.

5.4 Special transmittance requirements
5.4.1 Photochromic lenses

Photochromic lenses shall meet the transmittance requirements of ISO 12312-1:2013, 5.3.4.1.

5.4.2 Polarizing lenses

Polarising lenses shall meet the transmittance requirements of ISO 12312-1:2013, 5.3.4.2.

5.4.3 Gradient-tinted lenses

NOTE No provision is made for gradient-tint lenses because they are not appropriate for Squash, Racquetball

and Squash 57.
